SOME 10,000 WOMEN worked as cryptographers for the US Army and Navy during World War II, breaking the German and Japanese codes and saving American lives. They also took a vow of silence about their war work, so talking with writer Liza Mundy was the first time many of these women had ever discussed their wartime role.
Liza will be at Politics and Prose in DC this Saturday, October 14, at 1pm to discuss her work, which also chronicles the evolution of military intelligence.
The event will be terrific. But even better, we’re giving away a copy of Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II, published this week by Hachette Press. Just add a Comment on this post. That will give us your email address, which will allow us to get in touch with you should you win. Good luck!
